Sea Monster Questions


10 posts in this topic

Posted

So does anyone know anything about the sea monsters. Been sailing around on my ship and saw a bunch of different sea monsters but was WAY too -----ing scared to attack them.

 

Can anyone give me a list of easiest to hardest sea monsters with their names and possibly pictures of them?

Sounds like you want to do this solo so 2 things.

1. Loot is Guild loot, not personal loot.
2. It takes too much time and is boring to do it on an Epheria Sailboat solo and there is no reason for a party since there is only Guild loot.

You could solo some Hekaru (the non aggro monster at Ross sea) for the materials to craft the blue cannons (I did so hoping they would release them soon) but there are no blue cannons available yet to craft.

Organized from easiest to hardest imo:

 

Hekaru: Big pink Lizard thing.  Passive unless attacked, tied with ocean stalker for easiest imo, might be slightly easier.d68McfE.jpg

 

Ocean Stalker: Big green Dragon-looking thing.  Also passive, very similar to Hekarus, though might be slightly tougher.xYuJzC3.jpg

 

Kandidum: Twin small-horned Shark.  I think it's the weakest of the 3 aggressive ones in terms of attack damage, but its fight can be annoying.EgSTT8t.jpg

 

Black Rust: Giant angry Electro-Piranha thing.  Hurts a lot, takes a lot to kill.Ud1wbmP.jpg

 

Nineshark: The big bad of the sea (at least until the boss).  Big angry Horned Manta Ray/Goblin shark, very similar to Black Rust.MZrSJhG.jpg

 

Hekarus and Ocean Stalkers can be found fairly commonly in the seas bordering Margoria Proper (Ross, and Juur seas).  Kandidums and Ninesharks can be found throughout Margoria, and Black Rusts can be found around the edges.  The 2 passive ones are soloable, but honestly kind of a huge waste of time, the 3 aggressive ones realistically cannot be soloed.  None of the Margoria Sea Monster stuff is designed with a single player in mind, it's all supposed to be group content.

Can muskets hurt sea monsters? And can a full green geared +5 epheria sailboat solo a Hekaru?

You can also gain knowledge on some of the sea monsters from NPC's in port ratt. I got S rank on ninesharks talking to the trader there.

No muskets, only cannons.
Yes +5 epheria accessories on Hekaru is what I have used to solo Hekarus. You will most likely need to go repair sailboat before going for the next Hekaru, and the fight is long and tedious and the Hekaru moveset predictable and repeating. The reward is guild money and Hekaru process that can be used for crafting materials for blue epheria accessories (not in game yet). A pretty bad deal overall.

Climbing Everest is also a pretty bad deal overall, but many people flock to do it every year.

Not everything worth doing is worth doing for the phat lewt.
